The Power of Visioning


What would it be like if you could have absolute clarity on the highest path for your life, know exactly what you need to do to fulfill it, and be empowered to bring it to fruition? This is what the Life Visioning Process offers.

This powerful spiritual tool was developed by Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Founder and Spiritual Director of Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, California.

This tool enabled him to clearly see his purpose and to build a trans-denominational movement and community of 9,000 local members and 1,000,000 friends worldwide. It opened the way for him to be one of the featured teachers in the movie, The Secret, to be a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show as well as on Larry King Live on CNN, in addition to a multitude of other public appearances around the world.

The purpose of this spiritual tool is not to expand our ego-based reality, but to connect us to our divine soul-level purpose for this lifetime and to empower us to fulfill it. Dr. Beckwith’s outward success is due to his complete surrender to a higher purpose, his willingness to be the vehicle through which infinite possibility is constantly creating anew through him.

Dr. Beckwith’s true success is not as much about his personal accomplishments, as it is in the number of people he has served as a teacher of universal spiritual principles and how he has contributed to transforming so many lives through his teaching.

Visioning is not a tool for a select few. Visioning is a tool that you and I can also use to fulfill the greater purpose that is part of our contract for this lifetime.

With visioning, we move beyond attempting to make things happen, instead advancing to a place of surrender, where we allow ourselves to be the vehicle through which what is ours to do can be made manifest. We listen within for divine intuition to guide us as to what is ours to do. Rather than moving from our ego-based reality or from a purely material-based sense of what we want to manifest in our lives, we connect to what our soul is calling us to do. This leads to greater fulfillment for ourselves and greater satisfaction for all who are the beneficiaries of the gifts we offer.

Dr. Beckwith developed a clear 7-step process called the Life Visioning Process that allows us to consciously live from the higher vision for our lives by empowering us to see what our inner growth work is, what aligns us in terms of our outward activities, as well as what we need to release and let go of if we are to realize our highest potential.

The seven steps of the Life Visioning Process from Dr. Beckwith are:

  1. Meditation to bring us into a receptive state.
  2. Asking a question of our higher wisdom, such as what is the highest vision for my life?
  3. Asking what are the qualities we need to cultivate to align us with the vision (Or, what must we become?)
  4. Asking what we must release in order to manifest the vision.
  5. Asking what are the qualities we already have that will serve the vision.
  6. Saying “yes” to what is being revealed.
  7. Expressing gratitude for the vision.

This 7-step process is more than just something we take 20-30 minutes to do. It begins to inform every area of our lives and how we show up in the world. It opens the way for us to be in the flow of grace as we surrender and release some of our willfulness.

The invitation this day is to begin to explore visioning more deeply, to see if it might be the very tool that allows us to step into the largeness of the greater vision of our heart’s yearning. How exciting!

Enjoy the journey.
